Very interesting. Tests (Tech Tool) also does not show anything all passed.
However, I now found that simply putting the computer to sleep from the menu shows the same symptoms. The indicator light blinks as usual but the screen does not wake up. Upon hard restart - this is what it says on console -system log:
